A driveway alarm is a device that audibly and/or visually alerts you of potential intruders or incoming visitors. The driveway alarm is a sensor-based system that detects any motion in its sensor path; On detection of motion, it activates a signal and sets off an alarm, indicating the presence of a trespasser or guest. No matter the type of system they all generally include a transmitter and receiver that work together. The receiver can be placed anywhere in the home or business where there is an open electrical outlet that it can be plugged into, the transmitter can be placed in any location along one's driveway. Transmitters tend to operate on a battery and most alarm systems have weather-resistant, highly durable sensors that will protect the sensor for years.

Types of Driveway Alarms

There are two types of driveway alarm systems available in the market today: the wired driveway alarm system and the . Alarm systems use three types of detection systems: passive infrared (PIR), metal detection probes, and rubber air hose. Wired driveway alarms are more reliable as compared to wireless ones, provided the wire running from the sensing unit outside, to the monitor device inside the house is not nicked or damaged in any way. Digging a trench along the driveway, fishing the signal line into the building, and burying the wires in an existing house or apartment can be quite involved. Also, if the wire is needed to cover a long distance, the installation and material expense can be high. On the other hand, wireless driveway alarm systems are easy to install, and the sensor(s) can operate on a batteries for 6 months to a year. Also, wireless vehicle sensor probes have a short cable between the sensor and the transmitter unit.

Selecting Driveway Alarm Systems

Distance: The distance between the indoor receiver (inside the house) and the sensor (outside the house) needs to be determined. The distance also has to be checked for trees, buildings or any other objects. This is because whenever manufacturers list the distance, it is a clear line-of-sight distance. Objects (trees, buildings, concrete, hills) between the two locations can reduce the signal (the transmission working distance) greatly.

Sensors / Detectors: Whether you want to detect vehicles, or vehicles, people and potentially animals, also has to be determined. Alarm systems with PIR motion beams detect people and cars. PIR motion sensors with narrower beams will avoid detecting small animals. There are driveway alarm probes that are hidden underground to detect vehicles. PIR driveway alarm sensors work the best when mounted at a height of 2-3 feet, on a tree or wall, at least 6 feet away from the area to be monitored.

Receivers: Normally when a driveway alarm system sensor has detected a person or vehicle a signal is sent to the receiver, which responds in the form of a beep or chime to alert you to activity. System can trigger indoor or outdoor alarms as alerts a simple switch or relay output can be attached to wires, which can control the time of the siren or a telephone dialer can be activated to send out pre-recorded text or voice messages to land lines or mobile numbers.
